Reviews

Haven is a beautiful and timely novel about isolation, passion and the conflict between obedience and self-preservation. The island setting and the characters stayed with me long after I finished reading --
A patient, thoughtful novel with much to say about spirituality, hope, and human failure, and about the miracle of mercy
-- Esi Edugyan, Booker-shortlisted author of Washington Black
In 7th C, Ireland, three men set sail to a bird-thick island to find God. EmmaDonoghue combines pressure-cooker intensity + radical isolation, to stunning effect. What is Divine Grace? Purity of soul? Virtue? Not what they think. --
